Original lithograph on Zerkall 270 g. Printed in Antwerp at Atelier Hans Van Dijck. Published in 2017 by Ludion. Olympia (The real time disintegration into ruins of the Berlin Olympic stadium over the course of a thousand years) - Impression of Rain; David Claerbout is known for his video and photographic installations, in which time seems to stand still. The artist makes a series of drawings around each of his projects, which help him explore his themes in more depth. This original lithograph is likewise related to the video installation of the same name from 2016. Olympia (The real time disintegration into ruins of the Berlin Olympic stadium over the course of a thousand years), start 2016 is a virtual record of the decay of the stadium Hitler ordered built for the 1936 Summer Olympics. A monumental projection on two screens shows how nature will reduce the stadium to a ruin, without human intervention. The installation precisely reproduces the conditions to which the building in Berlin will be exposed for the next thousand years, using climatological updates downloaded in real time. The algorithm-driven process generates fresh images of aging and decay every day. The work does not contain any explicit criticism of the Third Reich: it is time itself that, in a sense, wreaks revenge.; Claerbout worked on this original, two-tone lithograph with the master printer Hans Van Dijck: 'My experience of David was as an artist who unhesitatingly understood the essence of an original multiple: direct creation in the chosen medium. Not transposing something already created, but working directly on the lithography stone.
